Unless you’re Angelina Jolie or John Travolta circa Grease, leather pants are probably not a good look. Here to take those sartorial eyesores of your hands is reMade U.S.A., a Brooklyn company dedicated to upcycling castoff materials into one-of-a-kind accessories. Designer Shannon South rehabilitates those blighted tights by turning them into one-of-a-kind bow-tie necklaces. Each feminine bow hangs on a vintage silver chain—just the thing to add a touch of dressed-up whimsy to any outfit. Thanks to South, something with a misbegotten past gets to have a future.
